McGuire, Carter power Dragons

By Messenger Staff | Published Saturday, September 14, 2013

The Chico Dragons (3-0) took advantage of a big second quarter enroute to a 47-18 win over Coram Deo (1-2) Friday night.

The game took place at Coppell West Middle School.

Sophomore quarterback Jericoe McGuire guided the Dragons down the field for a touchdown less than four minutes into the game, hitting Matt Carter for a 23-yard scoring strike to make it 6-0.

Carter was McGuire’s favorite target for the night, snagging four passes for 127 yards – all of them resulting in six points.

Carter also scored on a 26-yard run in the third quarter.

Coram Deo answered the Dragons’ opening touchdown with a 49-yard run by Charles Clinkscales less than a minute into the second frame.

Like Chico’s, their extra-point kick failed and the game was tied at 6-all.

But the Dragons put up three touchdowns before halftime to take a 27-6 lead into the locker room.

First, McGuire broke free from 25 yards out to put the Dragons back up 12-6.

Less than two minutes later, McGuire hit Carter again, this time for a six-yard TD pass. The same combination worked for the two-point conversion and it was 20-6.

Then with 2:33 to play, McGuire found fellow sophomore Jaston McBee for a 25-yard touchdown.

Coram Deo scored first in the third quarter when Clinkscales broke free again, this time from 65 yards out, making it 27-12.

But Carter went for 26 and Ivan Segura’s kick made it 34-12.

Then with four seconds left in the third frame, McGuire went aerial again, finding Carter for a 54-yard pass-run play.

Coram Deo scored with 5:33 left on a four-yard run, but McGuire-Carter struck again for a 40-yard touchdown to put up the final margin.

McGuire had 79 yards rushing on five carries and threw for 217, hitting 14 of his 18 passes with no interceptions.

The Dragons did have 84 yards in penalties, but five lost fumbles doomed Coram Deo.

The Flower Mound school put up 288 rushing yards to Chico’s 186, but managed just 57 yards through the air with two completions.

Chico will entertain Brock this Friday. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
